Health and savings benefits

EDF offers a generous benefit plan to eligible employees.


EDF offers an affordable and comprehensive health care plan. The plan covers a range of services, including doctor visits, hospitalization, prenatal programs and prescription drug programs.


EDF’s dental plan helps pay for a range of dental services, and is designed to encourage regular, preventive treatment.

Vision Insurance

The plan covers ophthalmologists, optometrists, glasses and contact lenses, and provides a discount on laser correction surgery.

Flexible Spending Accounts (FSA)

EDF’s Health Care and Dependent Care Flexible Spending Accounts allow employees to have money deducted from their pay on a pre-tax basis to be used for eligible out-of-pocket expenses. This program allows employees to reduce their income taxes and increase discretionary income for expenses such as prescription co-pays and day care.

Disability Protection

We provide income replacement for short- and long-term disabilities, including pregnancy, illness or injury. Full time employees accrue nine paid sick days per calendar year.

Life Insurance

The amount of life insurance staff are eligible to receive depends on their length of service at EDF. In addition to receiving group term life insurance, employees may elect additional supplemental life insurance coverage for themselves, their spouse/partner and children.

Retirement Plans

To help employees save for retirement, EDF offers a 403(b) plan that includes a mandatory 2% contribution. In addition, EDF contributes 3%, 5%, or 8% based on seniority or career level. Employees may also make additional voluntarily contributions up to the IRS annual maximum.

A 457(b) plan is also available to eligible employees.
